Bones I and Bones II – each ~ 10 1/2″ x 27 3/4″
Continuing with my circle series, I patched together fabric monoprinted with my circle motif, then added hand stitched running stitches around some of the circles and vertical lines of machine stitching. After looking at the composition I decided to print onto fabric some of the images I photographed from the skeleton at the Art and Design Center. I didn’t think there was enough contrast, so I added contrast with ink, appliquéd some lace behind some of the bones and added some hand stitching.
